Arcade Fire Performs "We Used To Wait" At Austin City Limits

Arcade Fire will be on "Austin City Limits" this Saturday. To promote this, they've released a video of themselves playing a sweaty but well-restrained performance of "We Used to Wait" interspersed with behind-the-scenes footage of how the show gets produced. I like the part where we get to see the audience come in: A bunch of friendly-looking music dorks totes psyched to have a good time. Some of them flash the camera what you first think is the devil-ears hand sign. But then you remember that this is Texas, and they're probably saying "Hook 'em, 'Horns!" But R.I.P. Dio, anyway.

I like the shot of CoolDad and how obediently everyone in the front row stays behind the blue tape imaginary barricade.

My uncle in the deep background at 2:38. I know, it's horrible to point that out. But I'm just so tickled.

In '88, I had the exact same hair as the drummer. And my boyfriend did too. Yeah, we were pretty hot.

Anyone else wanna punch that guy dancing at the end?
